#22 likes it. I think it'd be neat to compare the rankings to latitude as well. My station has run almost full time collecting telemetry since launch, and I continue to slide down the list. I'm not upset or even bothered by it, but it illustrates how much more access time a high latitude station gets on a polar orbit as compared to say, a 28.3 degree latitude location.
Competition has probably doubled the participation in this endeavor, which only helps the project. Plus, if it doesn't hurt anyone, why even care? Much better things to get tweaked about.
